Send them home

The City of Ottawa is spending $20 million on information-technology upgrades, over the next four years, to allow almost 2,000 of its employees to work remotely. At first glance, this might look like a costly perk for some public servants at taxpayers' expense. It isn't. The benefits, to the municipal public service, and to the city at large, could be substantial.

What about your organisation?
How much could you save in office space, supplies and services if some of your employees worked from home?
